Why is mother nature such a jerk!?

So when Mimi was 6 months old I posted this.  The aftermath of your body after having a baby (when you're not 20 years old at a perfect weight with beautifully elastic skin).  Here I am, almost 2 years later (Mimi is 2 in July), and I am still plagued by this spare tire around my belly!  I am so frustrated.

This is me today, obviously not the best photo, but it shows you exactly what I mean.  I love my body from the belly button up and from the mid-thigh down.  I've worked really hard running and eating health to get here, and I still have work to do.  However..... I HATE MY LOWER MIDSECTION.  Dude. Why will it not go away!? Do you see it there!? Just HANGING there driving me nuts.

I should be happy to be where I am considering that these shorts are 2 sizes too big and when I as 22 I couldn't even button them.   Today I'm 180 lbs (still need to lose that last 10 lbs!) and wearing a size 12 bottom and size M shirt.   A far improvement from when I was 245 lbs and a size 18/XL.  

I told hubs after we're done having babies I want a tummy tuck and a breast lift.

My body is the same! No matter how much weight I lose, how much I exercise, or how healthy I eat I still have a gut, hips, and thunder thighs. Frustrating!!!

you look fantastic...but i know exactly what you mean. 400,000,000,000,000,000 crunches won't get rid of my stupid little pouch nor will running for the rest of my life. i second your want for the surgery...pregnancy/breastfeeding destroyed those suckers.
